a cupcake with a challenge

Yes! I finally have a cupcake stamp to use with Taylor's cupcake challenge AND I finished the card this time - double good Friday, yes indeed. I was looking through some old supplies and I found this fun paper in my Party Pieces Simply Scrappin' kit from a couple catalogs ago. I had completely forgotten about it and I have a ton of die cuts left in it. I was going to place the cupcake directly to the patterned paper, but it got lost in all those circles, so I added a little plain background for it. Much better! I also added a little dab of diamond Stickles on the candle flame to make it stand out a bit more and add some fun sparkle.

Have a wonderful weekend!
